  • the other woman
    came to our house
    sat at our table,
    spoke in her affected voice
    while she drank our coffee
    and smoked
    her cigarettes,
    the other woman
    came to our house
    sat at our table
    spoke in an affected voice
    smiled an affected smile
    told her infected lies
    while i listened,
    little did she know
    that one day
    i would be happy
    and would sit
    at my own table
    drinking my own coffee
    smiling my own smile
    that she would never
    be able to erase...
